MEXICO CITY (AP) — Two international press groups are calling for a full investigation into the death of Honduran journalist Juan Carlos Argenal Medina, who was found shot to death at his home in the southeastern city of Danli.

The Committee to Protect Journalists and Journalists Without Borders say Argenal was a correspondent for Radio y TV Globo, which has come under attack for its opposition to the 2009 coup that deposed President Manuel Zelaya.

Zelaya's wife, Xiomara Castro, lost the Nov. 24 presidential election and is contesting the results.

The groups say Argenal's body was found Saturday.

Argenal was also owner of Vida Television. He was the third TV journalist killed this year in Honduras.
